I thought so.
My local cinema began to go 3D with the release of "Avatar", they put a huge neon that screams "3D Digital".
A few weeks ago I watched a film in that format and it was rather underwhelming. Yes, see some particles out of the screen but it wasn't impressive. When there was movement, everything was blurred; at the end, I had a slight headache.
I find it's another craze. Another reason for the big companies to get cash. Heck, the ticket is worth about 80-90% more than analog 2D.
